Sports & Adventure Activities
It can't get any better than this!
We loved our stay in Captiva! This house was just perfect! A quick walk to the beach, a huge screened in front porch with an amazing breeze, an Osprey nest on the roof that my kiddos were obsessed with watching, playing ping pong with my boys, the joy of watching planes take off and land and buzzing around the island as a family was just such a blast! We could not have asked for a more perfect location and house! Sherman took great care of us and we'll definitely be back in the future!
Mom's 80th Birthday Trip
We had a great time in Captiva. The location of the house could not have been better. The last hurricane caused some wear and tare on the outside of the house. The inside was the perfect size and the front porch was perfect for watching sunsets. The house was pretty clean, but there could have been some newer pans for cooking and more useable cups for beach use. Everything you needed was available though. Sherman was timely and very friendly - we had no problems and would come again.
Will be back !!!!!!!
It was outbid first time on the island and we are already counting the days until we can go back. The house had the perfect location, was clean, comfortable and he owners were great. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time at Runaway Haven! The home was furnished with a fully stocked kitchen that we used many times during our stay (along with the outdoor grill). The best part of the home in our opinion was the porch. We spent each afternoon relaxing, reading books and enjoying the nice breeze while looking out to the beach. We also enjoyed playing ping-pong and searching for sea shells (best I have ever seen). The home was only steps away from the beach and we didn't have to use the golf cart to get to the beach. We did enjoy riding around the island (which is beautiful) on the golf cart. Ray was awesome host, helping us with any questions and had everything ready for us when we arrived. Ray reminded us to purchase groceries before we boarded the ferry. He also had someone waiting at the dock (Sherman) to help us take our luggage to the rental. There is a store on the island with "essentials," but planning ahead and purchasing before boarding the ferry is recommended. We knew there were limited restaurants on the island, but we did enjoy eating at Barnacle's (order the fish tacos). As we were leaving, we were already planning our next trip to Little Captiva! This is a definite "must" if you are looking a quite, relaxing getaway.
A thoroughly enjoyable week at the beach. Could not have been more please as to the accomodations and location. Short walk to the beach and short golf cart ride to the pool. Everyone in our party had a excellent time. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking to get away from it all for a weekend or week. Will probable try and stay at this location again. Excellent job of upkeep by the owner.
Please note that pool access is no longer available.
Have stayed in this home 7 times, owner keeps home very clean and the location perfect. Sunsets are fantastic. Great porch for relaxing. Have been going to island for ten years and this is a great property at a great price.
North Captiva Island is one of the few bridge-less barrier islands on Florida's gulf coast. Since access is limited to private boat, water taxi or private airplane, the island has maintained its natural beauty. There are no cars on the island, transportation is by golf cart, bicycle or foot. All roads are narrow dirt roads which help maintain the tropical and unspoiled beauty of the Island where wildlife abounds. The Beaches are secluded, uncluttered and are world famous for shelling and fishing and beautiful sunsets.
